I have never seen a restaurant decorated like one! The eclectic decor make an accurate statement about what you can expect....anything goes! It's like a very good steak house in the middle of Mardi Gras. Entertainers come by your table, do their crazy thing, throw confetti, and sash to wear that proclaims you to be first timer. Music is going non-stop, people are dancing in the aisles. Don't go if you want a quiet, intimate dinner!!

Now, for the food. The steaks are absolutely great. They serve them already sliced on a sizzling plater. The meat grilled perfectly. They are served with delicious fries. The Mojitos are huge and served in a coconut shell.
They are delicious, but two will give a major buzz, and it's easy to drink even more with the party like atmosphere.

The place is very popular in Bogota, and can be hard to get into at prime dinner hours. It is worth any reasonable wait!

This place was absolutely what we were looking for, it was loud and fun and the food and drinks were delicious! Only bad thing was they took forever to bring drinks and take our order and we kept getting moved until we could get a table. It was ok though, we couldn't be too upset since we were on vacation and in such a fun place

More of a dining experience than a meal, this is a four story restaurant with wild decorations and a kitchen on every level. Reservations are definitely recommended, although tricky to actually make. The entrees weren't anything special, but this place seems to be more famous for its interactive party scene at each table, and on weekends turns into a popular nightclub.

The incredible decorations that you wont find anywhere else, with the mixture of traditional Colombian food and entertainment will give you all you want from Colombia in one lunch or dinner. But that's not all, it's not all, is one of the must go night clubs in the city, where all the locals go and have fun normally on saturday night. FYI it's a little bit far from the city center.

A fun place to go and eat good meat but really expensive. A lot of activities for the kids also.

Excellent ambient and service, although prices are a bit expensive, the experience was very different, in a good sense.

A LOCAL RESTAURANT WITH A VERY ORIGINAL DECORATION. A MUST FOR ALL TRAVELERS. THE ORIGINAL PLACE IS OUTSIDE BOGOTA (IN CHIA); ALSO THERE IS ONE IN BOGOTA, ALSO VERY GOOD. GO ON THURSDAYS, FRIDAYS OR SATURDAYS. GOOD FOOD, GOOD MUSIC, KIND OF A SPECTACLE.

This restaurant all around is a five star experience. The food is fantastic, the ambiance is terrific, the music is fabulous, and the restaurant staff are simply the best. We had a great meal here, and look forward to going back!

There were about 5 or 6 steak items recommended on the menu, and they all sounded great, so I had to try one. The beef was very tender (grass fed) and the presentation was great. It was one of the best meals I have had in Bogota! I highly recommend it if you're hungry for meat. It wasn't cheap but very reasonable compared of other steak houses of the world.

Andres DC is basically like being in a supper club from the 20s that was invented and adorned by Pedro Almodovar and Salvador Dali. The five floors of Andres DC take you from hell to heaven, each table 0 named for a deceased person (and speculating on where they ended up.) A cabaret plays music, confetti rains down on you occasionally, and the decor is red, sparkly, and random. Could make for a gimmicky mess if the food wasn't ridiculously good. Ceviches and octupus salad are wonderful. Fresh limes come to the table for squeezing into your water or fresh strawberry juice. Little squares of coconut put chips and salsa to shame as the snacky little starter. And, the steak is a buttery, bacony, rich revelation in the pleasures of the flesh. Oh, and the menu is about 30 pages long, tempting you to return.

Andres Carnes de Res is an incredible place. I lived in Manhattan for five years and have never seen a nightclub/restaurant quite like this. Young, old, tall, short, Colombian, not all are on the dance floor having an incredible time. The music was fantastic and the service was the best we had in in the country. You MUST go to Andres if you visit Bogota.

This is the best place on earth... ok, close. The food is delicious, you get greeted at the door with a shot inside a scooped out lime. The atmosphere makes for a great party. Highly recommend!

awesome, awesome, awesome. You'll be entertained, the food is good, everyone's up for a good time, amazing decorations. All in all, a must-go-to if you're in Bogota to experience the Colombian spirit. I hear the one in Chia is much better but this one is easily accessible and worth your time.

This expansive dance club, full bar and restaurant is the perfect place to kick up your heels with the most fun-loving people in Bogota. Technically, it's outside of the city (about a 30 minute drive), but Andres Carnes de Res is a complete microcosm of Colombian night life. With a colorful atmosphere, fresh food and live music on seven dance floors, guests are sure to find something to groove to as they navigate through the pulsing crowds.

Without doubt one of Bogota's defining experiences, it may be expensive and difficult to get to but it's absolutely worth it.

First up: the food. Unrivalled in terms of quality and presentation, it’s arguably Colombia’s best restaurant and certainly the best meat I’ve tasted in the country. I recommend getting anything beefy. Well-cooked, tender and delicious.

Once the food is over, however, is when the real experience starts. Andres Carne de Res is a place full of color and chaos. The walls are adorned with incredible kitsch decorations, costumed performers wander around the club and while all this is going on the best selection of internation and local music is being played.

Ultimately the best thing about Andres Carne de Res is the atmosphere. Since it’s not easy to get to, people tend to be devoted to having a good time and enjoying the night without reservations. People come in groups, but it always ends up that the entire club seems to be socialising with each other.

To get to Andres Carne de Res you’ll need to either book a bus with a group or take a taxi (roughly $40-50,000) since it’s outside the city in a place called Chia. Entrance is $15,000, while a bottle of alcohol will set you back about $120,000. It’s certainly not the cheapest night in Bogota, but if you do decide to go, you’ll soon discover it’s one of the most fun. And not just in Bogota, but the world.

Andres was the place I was mostly looking forward to visiting while in Bogota. I really wanted to go to the original location, but opted not to since it was far away and and I was traveling alone. I ended up going to the restaurant outlet in the city on a Sunday and it did not live up to the hype. I guess I was there a little too early in the evening to witness all the excitement of the entertainment I read about, but what i saw was average at best. The food was a little disappointing- my steak had a little too much fat on it although it had a good peppery flavor. The one thing i did appreciate it is that i left a comment card with how I felt about the food and about a week later I received an email about my feedback. I am sure it would be better during a busier time, but it just didnt do it for me.
